Hanamikouji-dori

Gion Kobu Kaburenjo Theater

Gion Corner

Hanamikouji-dori is a 1-kilometer long street passing north-south through the Gion entertainment district. Geiko and maiko go about their business on this glamorous street, lined with entertainment establishments. In contrast, a silence resonates deep within this dynamic atmosphere. The 2 faces of Kyoto - poised and resplendent - are concentrated, here, on Hanamikouji-dori.
